Since they launched in the 1990s, the DSL range has become a gigging staple for Marshall fans who want versatility, power and gig-ready reliability. And now, thanks to our friends in Bletchley, we’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win the do-it-all new DSL20C model for themselves.
The DSL range differs from most classic Marshall amps in one important way, and the clue is in the name. The Dual Super Lead is a valve-powered beast that offers two distinct but hugely usable lead channels from which you can deal out classic Marshall rock tones thanks to the combination of ECC83 preamp and EL34 power amp tubes under the hood. The ‘classic gain’ channel offers the cranked Marshall tones that we all know and love, but the ‘ultra gain’ turns things up to 11, offering searing gain to suit everything from hard rock to metal.
The Dual Super Lead has been a backline mainstay for nearly three decades, but Marshall hasn’t rested on its laurels with one of its most popular and successful products, and the company overhauled the range for 2018, launching the new amps at January’s Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.
A gig-friendly 20-watt valve combo (with the handy ability to drop the power to 10 watts for smaller venues), the DSL20C packs a single 12-inch Celestion Seventy 80 speaker and a tweaked EQ stack that’s designed to tame the DSL’s formidable bass, while you also get a speaker-emulated 3.5mm output for silent recording, a 3.5mm input to play along to your favourite tracks at home, an effects loop, and built-in digital reverb.
The DSL really is a do-it-all combo for gigging and recording guitarists who want that classic Marshall tone and more – more gain, more flexibility, and more inspirational tones.
